Unboxed City is a collaboration between the Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism (LCAU) and OverUnder.

The idea for the exhibition started during a LCAU summer 2023 research project which sought to understand the ways in which Generative AI is used in Urban Design, Architecture, Planning and related fields. As the research progressed our team realized there is still so much misconception about how Generative AI algorithms work so we decided to unbox it. The exhibition builds on that initial research and the many LCAU faculty, students, and staff helping to build that knowledge.
